The lottery is probably something that most of us have tried or dreamt about. Becoming a millionare overnight, going out and buying that car you always wanted or travel the world. I sure do the rare times I play the lottery. See, I got smarter over the years, allthough every once in a while I fall down the same rabbit hole into wonderland. Just like last night when I found out that i could participate in Europe's lottery, and just like that I got sucked into the black whole of dreams.
The natural question is, what to do with all those millions? Besides buying a really bad ass car, travelling the world and helping poeple in need, i got no clue. Buy a house? Maybe two. Get a dog, and do whatever i what. I actually think i would try making a hotel and administrate it, just for the challenge. What would you do?
But! There was a reason in my sudden interest in the Euro Million lottery. And that is one in seventy-two million;
Those are were your odds this evening when the Euro Millions jackpot was released with a whooping £121,722,017! (For the americans, that's roughly 195.729.242,92 US dollars).
Im not really into gambling, and I think gambling is fine as long as youre able to restrain yourself to owe your local cartel a few hundred grand. I play the occasional poker, lottery (when the prizes are crazy like this) and in very, very, very rare cases a scratchcard. And then I've had a monster of a day!
So... Are you feeling lucky today?
